This was our second trip to North east Tasmania and Tin Dragon Cottages. The cottages are tastefully decorated, well provisioned and the setting is beautiful with the Ringarooma river curling around the property which is surrounded by forest. It has its own hydro power and free range eggs and garden greens. These were all made available by our helpful and generous hosts: Graham, Christine and James.
We saw plenty of wildlife including platypus, wombats, wallabies, snakes and the freshwater lobster!
We also found there was plenty to do in the region with great walks at the Blue Tiers, the Historic walk at the property, the Lavender farm, waterfalls and there was even fossicking at the Weld River where we found zircons and sapphires.
We would recommend it to anyone as an eco friendly place to get away from it all. It was great.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We offer romance, seclusion and privacy in fully self-contained two-bedroom and studio spa-cottages each with river views - situated on a 36 acre bush alpaca farm. Each cottage has a private outdoor dining area with bar-be-que and the studio cottages have an outdoor heated spa. Principles of ecological sustainability are combined with the comforts of a luxurious retreat. Your only disturbance might be from the occasional inquisitive pademelon or soaring eagle. This stretch of the Ringarooma River is favored by fly fishermen. Chinese heritage is celebrated with an interpretation centre, landscape art and walking tracks through historic mining and water races. ... more less
